Haute Dogs Design ....Offering hand crafted custom collars, bow ties, flowers, leashes and harnesses for your haute dogs, pampered pooches and cool cats.


In 2002 I brought a new man into my life. Paco was a tiny little chihuahua and it was impossible to find a cute collar in his size. I ended up buying one online and then modifying it to fit him. Eventually mainstream pet stores started to carry collars in his size however they just didn’t suit his personality, but I didn’t know how to sew and was stuck with the commercial offerings.

For years I have dreamt of a job that would allow me to spend the day with my pups. In 2018 my office closed and I realized this could be an opportunity to combine two of my greatest loves, my dogs and my creative side. I learned to sew, specifically to make collars for my sweet pups. I loved my collars so much I wanted to share them with my friends, and they wanted to share them with their friends and now I want to share them with you! In 2019 I am pleased to announce the addition of vest style harnesses and leashes to our line.

I am excited to customize your order. Do you have a particular design in mind? Let me know and we can work together to make the perfect collar for your pup. Do you have a teeny little chihuahua puppy who needs a ridiculously small collar? We can do that, after all that is what planted the seed all those years ago. Do you want the d ring left off or a fabric only collar? Do you have a chubby chi with a little extra girth around their chest? No problem, just send a note with your order with their measurements and we can customize the harness size for you.

All of our collars, leashes and harnesses are lovingly made and tested on our own dogs. We do recommend using a harness to walk your dog for their safety and comfort. Our products are beautiful and durable however we do not recommend them for aggressive pullers.

Thank you for taking a moment to read our story. We are looking forward to helping you find the perfect collars for your cool cats, haute dogs, and pawsitively pampered pooches!

Frequently Asked Questions

What sizes are the dog and cat collars?
My fabric collars come in all sizes; extra small (perfect for teacup, toy dogs and cats), small, medium, and large. Some of our ribbon based collars are only available in specific sizes. Those listings will not have a drop down feature to change the width of the collar however you can message me and we can customize the collar length.
The best way to pick the right size collar for your dog is to measure your pup’s neck and then pick from the size chart.
I am happy to make custom sizes as well, just send me a convo!

XS- (3/8" wide), adjustable 7-11" long
Small- (5/8” wide), adjustable 10-15” long
Medium- (5/8” wide), adjustable 14-19" long
Large- (1" wide), adjustable 18-24” long

XS (3/8" wide), adjustable 7-11”
Please specify you would like a breakaway buckle

How long are your leashes?
We have found a 4 foot leash to be ideal while walking our pups. It allows them room to roam while still being close enough to control should an emergency situation arise. All of our leashes are 4 feet long however you can customize your leash length by sending a message.

Tell me about the harnesses!
Our harnesses can be made with any of the fabric you see in our shop and are designed to coordinate with our collars and leashes.
Please notate fabric choices on your order. If no preference is listed we will attempt to contact you via email. If a response is not received we will make the harness with the primary fabric shown in the listing.
Sizing is as follows:
Extra extra small: neck 5-7” chest 8-10”
Extra Small: neck 6-9” chest 10-12”
Small: neck 7-10” chest 12-14”
Medium: neck 8-11” chest 14-16”
Large: neck 10-13” chest 16-18”
The guidelines above are just general sizing recommendations. We recommend measuring your dog to ensure an accurate fit. We can also extend the neck and chest bands for a better fit.
To measure place a soft measuring tape around your pets neck where their collar would naturally lay. Measuring with at least a full finger underneath so it is not too tight. Repeat around your pets chest.
